Re: Stefs SOTC may 22

One of the good things about life in this forum is the fairly regular jolt out of "this is my normal" complacency and Stefs you've just won that prize for this month, last month and probably, next month too.

That Tag smart watch is a real shape shifter.

Re: Have a laugh with me, not at me...

Yeah there's fluff on that crystal.... way too much fluff! :lol: I'd say that there's enough awareness of MH issues in the world to suggest that MissF is unlikely to be alone in any symptoms beyond obsessing slightly about watches and I'm certain that she is not alone at this forum in terms of suppo...

Oh whoosh, that's an Ent so unless you are abusive of wood products, it is basically benign. Subtext: sharpen your pencils elsewhere.

Mmm, steel case/gold crown: that was quite the style once wasn't it? I like it - just maybe not every watch all the time :lol:

Re: First, last, and only modded watch.

Well, it certainly looks good so well done on your first time success. Was it the whole fiddly "I could so easily break this part/wouldn't it be easy to make a mess of the hands/I need a microscope to seat the seconds hand" faffiness or was there a particular aspect of the mod that you did...

Re: Milek & Co watchmaker Stockport - first class service

Wow, that's excellent service and you should count yourself as fortunate to have found "a good 'un". My previous go-to repairman has now retired and though I've had service elsewhere which I'm totally happy with, Omega GB and Simon Freese being high points I've had frustrating experiences ...

Re: Technical question about my Sealander GMT's movement - Storage Position At Night

Of course, I could always experiment, but this is a watch forum so it is likely someone knowledgable member has already taken the time to do this. You nailed it. Trial and error. They’re all a bit different. Yes, this is a watch forum, which is why you will get 20 different answers to the same ques...

Re: CWL of the day

I regard this C60 COSC as my collection defining black-faced diver: COSC rated, polished case, handsome, 300m WR: I really must gauge all other black dialled divers by this standard; having failed previously in this respect I have too many watches. :silent: :silent:

Re: CWL of the day

This is my "One" CW watch. It would remind me of all the others which followed including my earlier example of this colourway assembled for me from "down the back of the sofa" and which I was a fool to part with.

I don't think you should display this watch without warning me first: it unsettles me. :oops:
